I almost didn’t publish this pattern. My first few drafts were just dreadful. And then when I thought I managed to get it right I’d show someone and they would point out this or that and no matter how kind they were it was starting to really wear me down.

I have other drafts of patterns that have discouraged me and will never see the light of day. I am glad I decided to free this guy. My husband said the merman’s face reminds him of a Lego figurine.

I don’t know a lot about mythology but this guy was definitely based on King Triton from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. This king has a big shaggy beard, sexy biceps, and a lightning stick (a trident).

My tester, cyncitycrochets picked the perfect colors, in my opinion! If you use the interlocking crochet technique then the Wrong Side is an inverted opposite type image (but not exactly opposite). If you use the overlay mosaic technique it will just be striped.
